Biblios was created by oliverkinne
Sometimes, older games are the best, especially if they are...

You were proud of your large library and your hard-working group of scribes was continually adding new tomes, with wonderfully decorative lettering and illustrations. However, you only had so much gold and the best scribes weren't cheap, but you had to somehow continue growing your collection of books to keep the bishop happy and outdo other abbots who were vying for influence. So you persevered and did what you could to have the most Biblios by Steve Finn from iello.

This is a great little game. Needs more attention.

Many years ago I would go to a game club out of town, and Biblios was very popular there. I enjoyed that game quite a bit.

This is the favorite game of Mark Besada of the Board Game Barrage podcast. He won't shut up about it, but no one else ever supports him on it. Interesting to see quite a bit of support here...

I tell people you know Catan is a good game because you always have a good post-game discussion of what happened. If you want to talk afterwards, the session clearly left an impression.

Biblios doesn’t even wait until after the game. This is a game where you’re talking about what you did right and what you did wrong during the game. Commentary mid-journey.

This has been reissued by Iello as "For the King (And Me)", a dumb name and a dumb theme. It is available to play on Board Game Arena under that name.

So this same game is now on its third title without a retheme? What's that about?

It does seem to have gotten a retheme with this new version. The only rules differences appear to be adding more cards for 5p, and scoring 2nd place for the majorities. 5p is whatever but I think the second place scoring is a really good addition. Makes throwing away cards for gold in the auction a trickier thing to manage.

Edit: scoring second place majorities wouldn't make sense 2p but I'm definitely trying that next time I play this multiplayer.

I've only played this twice, both on the same night, and I remember really enjoying it. But it wasn't from my collection and I've never seen it since - and no longer remember how to play. If it's on BGA, I'll have to give it another spin.

I don' t have premium and I'm absolutely fried by game rules at the moment, but I might subscribe and try and get something set up for us.
